Valencia, Hart Share Foothill League Softball Championship

The Foothill League softball season ended with Valencia winning its ninth straight championship. But for the second year in a row, Hart can claim a share of the title too.

The Valencia softball team capped its league season with a 7-2 win over Saugus. Hart shut out Golden Valley, 8-0, behind a one-hitter from Destiny Rodino. Both Valencia and Hart ended with 8-2 league records.

Saugus finished in third place and will earn an automatic playoff berth to the CIF-Southern Section playoffs when they are announced next week.
